Hello, I've heard about "H.M." and similar patients that lost the ability to create declarative memories, but can still create non-declarative memories. I was wondering, since one in this condition can for example, develop a habit of drawing complex shapes, and not know they did it, can they similarly, if they keep repeating it, learn to say and pronounce complicated concepts? For example, to learn to recite some equation or a long poem, and if they have some new concepts or words that the patient doesn't know, the patient would have no idea what he is saying, but would still do it? Another example that comes to mind is if they were to be instructed to greet someone in a new language and eventually learn to say that expression, but have no idea why they are saying it, nor what it means? So every time this foreigner would walk into the room, would they automatically greet the person in a different language? In essence my question is whether, as much as declarative memory makes connections to different facts in the brain, it still uses non-declarative processes to actually learn how to actually say the factual statement? Hope this made sense, any thoughts appreciated.
